Sergei Eisenstein shot ¡Que viva México! in Mexico in 1931 at the height of the Great Depression. The courageous financiers of this project were the author Upton Sinclair, his wife Mary Craig and a small group of their friends. They had great difficulties in keeping the production going; the economic crisis forced Sinclair to call a halt to it in early 1932. Shooting was stopped with most of the work completed; only one episode could not be filmed. At the same time Josef Stalin insisted on... ( 8 reviews ) Topic: Mosfilm, Eisenstien, Film, Classic

This print is much sharper and cleaner than the existing IA copies. Another outstanding suspense thriller from Hitchcock's British years. If it isn't as popular as "The 39 Steps" or "The Lady Vanishes," it's probably because it's mounted on a smaller scale than those well-known classics. It also has a plot element some audiences found disturbing. Based on Joseph Conrad's novel, "The Secret Agent." Directed by Alfred Hitchcock. UK release 1936. US release 1937....

The Goddess a silent film from China made in 1934 and starring Ruan Lingyu in a stunning performance is the story of a prostitute and her son. (The word for Goddess in Chinese also means a loose woman) It was directed by Wu Yonggang. It is a simply lovely film which will move you as few silent films can. I discovered it on the Archive, stabilized the print and added a music track and some titles. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. ( 2 reviews ) Topics: China, prostitution, education
